Hello! Joining from the other thread, horseypants

Starlight nice to see you on here too! And to everyone else!

Quick background - am 30, been TTC nearly 3 years with PCOS. Been pg twice naturally but lost both. Now on my 2nd round of clomid, 100mg days 2-6. Currently CD4 so a way to go yet. Last cycle I was on 50mg and I didn't ovulate til CD31

I know this sounds crazy but I've been told by 2 different psychics I was going to have twins...I thought it was strange they both said it but now here I am however many years later, on clomid. Uh oh!

Dreamery - when are you testing? Very soon? Good luck!

Louimom - hot flushes, sweats etc can be one of the side effects of clomid. Personally this hasn't happened to me yet but I've def read other people complaining of the same thing. I would hope it's a sign that it's working?!

Re ovulation - I do ovulate naturally but just really, really late. Usually around CD35ish, but the last 3 cycles before clomid were CD41, CD43 and CD50, giving me 60+ day cycles. I have PCOS. Anyone else?

I had a lot of hot flashes my first round of clomid last cycle, but so far this #2 cycle (just took second dosage yesterday) no hot flashes or headaches yet! on CD 3 today, so just behind your Smiler

5 years ago, I had an NYC taxi driver tell me that: (1) I would meet my future husband within the next two months; and that (2) I would have 2 children before I am 30. I didn't really think much of this until I ended up meeting the love of my life and my future husband within two months of meeting that taxi driver, which was very unexpected! I am 28 now and so the only way that I can have 2 kids before 30 is with twins....so here's hoping!!!

Ha yeah I noticed some of us are starting to cross over on various threads, having a hard time keeping up! My brain is a bit slow at the best of times

We've been talking as if we're going to have twins just so we're mentally prepared! I know the chances in all seriousness aren't drastically high, but since we know someone who had twins after clomid, it kind of made it a bit more real, iykwim. They were totally surprised and although very happy, she did freak out a little bit. The idea scares me too since I don't live near my family but I do believe that whatever life throws at you, you find a way to manage

good luck everyone xxxx
I didn't have that happen, but since it can cause the hot flashes and stuff like that I would think night sweats would be a side effect, too. I had some headaches and feeling of being warm (not really hot flashes). About halfway through I had some nausea, but it wasn't much and went away quickly.

I have some anovulatory cycles and cycles where my body gears up to ovulate, but doesn't. I took soy for 3 cycles which helped me to ovulate, but we didn't get pregnant so that's why I'm trying Clomid. I'm hoping it strengthens my ovulation, too.

Starlight- I hope that taxi driver is right!

I would LOVE to have twins and so would my hubby. My hubby is a twin and twins run in both sides of our family (though the man's side doesn't count). Twins skip generations in my family and so far none of 70+ cousins have had twins and there's only about 25 of us who haven't had kids yet (with some of them being very young kids themselves). While it would be a little scary it would be worth it.

Hubby and I would be thrilled with a BFP and a healthy baby but also are really excited about the idea of twins (even though it isn't super likely)!! I am super exicted right now, hehe

Louimum - last month on my first time with clomid, I had also woken up at night with drentched from the night sweats - it sure can be unpleasant!!

I O naturally but typically have longer cycles (up to 50 days) and may have PCOS, so hoping that clomid does the trick!!! Just started a second cycle and hoping that this is the one

Ooh yes I'd love to have twins! But one would also be just fine thank you very much :-)

I havent had any side effects at all of clomid - i was expecting at least something but there's nothing at all. Really hope it doesnt mean it's not working. I'm on CD15 today and still no OPK so I'm really hoping my body decides to ovulate tomorrow.

I'm on clomid because of very irregular cycles, of between 28 and 60 days in the last 3 years (although stupidly OPK positive day is usually a Friday when hubbie is out with the boys so he gets a big come home soon message!). Although this summer they have all been between 28 and 35 days so that's a bit of progress.

That's funny about people predicting about twins. I did have a very vivid dream last night that I got a BFP - hoping it's going to become reality very soon!

Horseypants your cat is really cute - I'd love to have one (am a cat person not a dog person), it might help take my mind off this a bit, but I am on a main road and dont think it's safe enough.

the other thread i started before i got the bright idea for a testing thread to document all our bfps

our cat is such a sweety. he doesn't leave our yard! my fiance' is also a cat person. i'm a dog person, but yeah, this kitty is really special. and again not to be confusing, but i'm taking about my rel cat, the orange one, not the white one - he's in the pic at the beginning of my ttc journal.

i'm tired today! waiting to o.................
